Multiple Monitor Case Study

A little bit about me:  I run a small consultant business.  I’ve been a day trader since the late 1980’s and a lot of things have happened since then.  I went from relying on telephones and cable news for more information, to using an advanced system with a

multiple monitor computer system that helps me generate all the information I need to make successful trades online.  It’s actually not hard once you learn how to do it.  My firm works with dozens of other successful stock traders and we supply them, not with the actual pick that they should make, but rather with the data that they need to make a decision.  We do this for a few reasons, but primarily because it limits our liability.  We also offer a few courses though out the year that helps people learn how to read this information.  The idea is that anyone that wants to be a successful trader should be able to do so.  That’s why we do things this way.

So, now that you know a little bit about my back ground, I want to talk with you a little bit about the technology we use and why we use it.  A few years ago I read a multiple monitor case study that talked about how people are using multiple monitors to help increase their productivity.  It’s a pretty cool idea.  You can actually have all of your information flowing through a series of screens that allow you to make faster decisions on the fly without having to search for applications and windows.  It’s really quite remarkable.  The multiple monitor case study looked great, but I wanted to read more about it, so I started searching online.  Oh boy, there is a wealth of articles that talk about how using multiple monitors helps with productivity in just about every business there.  It’s pretty cool.  I started thinking, man I could really use this for my business- it would help me disseminate information to my clients much quicker which will hopefully increase all of our profits.

So low and behold I found a guy locally that uses the same type of setup to help him more quickly make decisions in his Forex trading business.  You see he does money/currency exchange online, so he’s able to make a fortune doing this because of his multiple monitor computer system.  I asked this guy if he would mind if I came buy one afternoon to see how his setup works and he was kind enough to oblige.  I’ve got to tell you, I was really impressed with the way his setup worked.  He has multiple screens, each with a different chart or graph and then a separate screen where the actual trading takes place.  It was quite a site.  Quite a site indeed!  I asked why he decided to setup multiple monitors and he told me that it was because he wanted to increase his profits and his productivity.

I actually asked him if he had read the multi monitor case study and he said he had.  Initially that was what got him to consider using multiple monitor computers.  I thought that this sounded almost like fate.  I mean, here this guy is in a very similar business to mine and he used the same multiple monitor case study and decided to use a setup that’s very similar to what I was considering.  In the end I decided that it was more than just fate and that if I wanted to really grow my business that I should do the exact same thing and setup a multiple monitor computer system just like his.  This would benefit both me and the clients that I service.

So, that’s when I made up my mind and decided that’s exactly what I was going to do.  Between the multi monitor case study and seeing the multiple monitor displays in action, it looked like it was time to start shopping for some multiple monitor computer systems.  Now in the beginning I wasn’t sure what to buy.  I mean, sure, the multi monitor case study talks about using 4 monitor computers and 6 monitor computers, but it did not exactly paint a really clear picture on what type of hardware to buy and it definitely didn’t tell me how to set it all up.  So for that I decided to rely on the experts.  I went with a company call multi-monitors.com.  They’ve been around for almost a decade now and they really know there stuff.

At first I just started talking with a guy named Dave via email.  But eventually I picked up the phone and started speaking with a guy by the name of Ryan.  With their help I was able to determine exactly what I needed to buy within a very short period of time.  I mean, if you ask me, it almost sounded like Dave and Ryan could have written the multiple monitor case study.   They really knew their stuff.  This was absolutely perfect for a guy like me.  I mean remember, when I first started doing stock trading I used telephones and TV screens.  Now I was presented with an opportunity to really improve my marketing plan for the first time in a really long time.  I was going to be able to increase my productivity and in the end increase my profits.  This is something that I really wanted to do.  I was excited at the prospect of being able to increase my productivity and profits, for obvious reasons of course.

So to make a long story a little bit shorter, after I consulted with Dave and Ryan at multi-monitors.com I cross checked what they said with the multi-monitor case study and found that most of what they said was spot on, according to the authors of the case study.  I bought the computer and my profits, productivity and client base have been growing ever since.  If you’re considering a multiple monitor computer, I highly recommend it.  It will increase your ability to profit and you will be happy that you did.
